Christmas market and cloth hall in Krakow's Old Town

Krakow’s Old Town

I arrived in Krakow from Prague via a seven-hour train ride.  I followed the signage from the train station to Krakow’s Old Town which took me through the mall, up to an exit through a Christmas market, down into a tunnel beneath a street and then into a lovely park dusted in a light snow.  The walk through the park to one of the many streets that lead the square was quite soothing after a long day.

Nuremberg’s Walkable Old Town

We arrived in the morning to Nuremberg on our last day of our Danube Cruise and organized a taxi ride from port to our hotel in Old Town for around 20 euro.

Where to Stay in Nuremberg

Our hotel, Gideon Designhotel, was in the Old Town of Nuremberg’s southeast corner.  The hotel was conveniently located near a variety of restaurants, the pedestrian area, as well as the train and bus station.  We really liked the location.

Cruising the Danube

Our seventh stop on the Danube was in Regensburg, the fourth largest city in Bavaria, Germany with a population of 150,000.  Due to the challenging parking, many residents bike, thus we dodged several cyclists as we walked Regensburg’s Old Town.
